Okay, so Truly Organic is a line new to me, but since I was at Ulta and I had a gift card (and hey, that’s like free money!), I decided to take the plunge. Since I’ve been enjoying CBD skin care products, I decided to go with their Golden Leaf mask, boosting a total of 300mg of CBD in the bottle. So, first off, as soon as you put the face mask on, you immediately feel the tinging effects. At first, I was worried it was going to irritate my skin (which doesn’t take much), but after a few seconds, the feeling faded, and I was able to wear the mask comfortably for 25 to 30 minutes. Now, unlike my favourite CBD mask, from G4U, which you can read about here, this mask is not one you want to leave on your skin for long. It doesn’t dry as quickly nor is it as aggressive as a mud mask, however, since it contains Glycolic acid and AHA/BHA, it does have an exfoliating effect on the skin, which is quite nice, but can also irritate the skin if overused.
Overall, I did notice a difference in my skin. As soon as I took the mask off, my face felt smoother and refreshed. And so far (I’ve used it around five times thus far) it has been great for my acne. It doesn’t anger cystic acne bumps, and it seems to take some of the redness and swelling out of their sails. However, I would only use this mask once a week. I tried doing it every other day, and my skin was far from pleased. After all, Golden Leaf does have some potent ingredients that get the job done, and as such, they need to be used sparingly. But I’d likely get this mask again. It’s quite nice to use to brighten the skin and to help clear up some acne. Plus, it’s not bad for my dramatic skin and that’s always a win in my book.
